LA Lakers defeat Denver Nuggets 102-84. The thin air seemingly inconsequential, the Lakers continued to pound the Nuggets to ultimate self destruction. The Nuggets decided to be more defensive which seemed laughable at points, but their offense just couldn't get going. Carmelo Anthony and Allen Iverson combined for 10-38 shooting with 16 and 15 points respectively which just isn't going to get it done. The Lakers can close out the series on Monday in game 4 in Denver.

LA Dodgers (11-13) defeat Colorado Rockies 11-3 (10-14). After a crazy game Friday night, why not start things off just as crazily? After Brad Penny (4-2) gave up a two-run homer to Garrett Atkins to start things off in the first, Mark Redman (2-2) gave up 10 runs in the home half of the inning. Matt Kemp hit a sacrifice fly and his first major league grand slam to notch 5 RBIs in the inning. Not only did every Dodger hitter score a run in the first inning, every run was scored with two outs. The scariest moment happened in the first pitch off the fourth inning when home plate umpire Kerwin Danley was hit in the jaw by a Brad Penny 96 mph fastball. He was knocked unconscious for a few seconds and was taken by ambulance to the hospital. He should be released from the hospital now.

LA Galaxy (2-2-1) over Chivas USA (1-3-1) 5-2. It's like last year never happened. The Galaxy spanked Chivas thanks to Landon Donovan's three goals and Alex Gordon's two. Ante Razov managed to tie the game 2-2 in the 62nd minute, but it was too much Galaxy. Now imagine how the Galaxy will look after Carlos Ruiz comes back from his injury. Yikes.
